Outfielder Carlos Gonzalez hasn't hit for average so far this season, but at least now he certainly is hitting for power. Through 15 games in May, Gonzalez has hit four home runs with 11 RBIs, while walking 11 times. He also has six extra-base hits this month after having only five in 24 games in April. Although the 25-year-old is hitting only .245 this season, he is a .385 career hitter against Philadelphia. Like Gonzalez, Colorado's other young stud is in a nice stretch. Shortstop Troy Tulowitzki has driven in multiple runs in three of his last five games. Phillies: Struggling in the clutch
The Phillies -- losers of four straight entering Wednesday -- have struggled with runners in scoring position. In their last 42 at-bats in such situations, Philadelphia is hitting only .167 (seven hits, entering Wednesday). Wednesday's game will mark a homecoming for the Phillies, who completed an eight-game, nine-day road trip on Tuesday. Worth noting
The Phillies' 2-1 loss to the Cardinals on Tuesday marked only the second time this season they lost a game started by a left-handed pitcher (Jaime Garcia). Their other loss against a southpaw came April 19 against Milwaukee's Randy Wolf. Two of Philadelphia outfielder Raul Ibanez's three career hits against De La Rosa have been home runs.
